* ''ComicBook/SevenSoldiers'' features the nefarious Subway Pirates, rival factions of which are led by the barbaric Allbeard (whose incredibly thick, long beard covers up his face) and the slick Nobeard (who has a BaldOfEvil and is incapable of growing hair anywhere on his body).

** The Master's most iconic appearance, as portrayed by Roger Delgado, is bearded, as is that of Anthony Ainley. Ainley was intentionally trying to look like Delgado.

The Master also had a beard as portrayed by Jonathan Pryce in the UsefulNotes/ComicRelief spoof "The Curse of Fatal Death", and as voiced by Creator/DerekJacobi for the animated "Scream of the Shalka", though fans were sufficiently used to the idea that no one was seriously bothered when Sir Derek Jacobi and John Simm played beardless Masters in 2007 [[spoiler:(although the Simm incarnation would eventually grow his own beard in the 2017 series)]].

Gargamel in ''WesternAnimation/TheSmurfs'' in attempts to grow his own Beard Of of Evil in his admiration of evil wizards with beards by using magical hair growth tonic, but his beard ends up growing up so long that it reaches to the Smurf Village.
** Gargamel in ''WesternAnimation/TheSmurfs'' did sport a fake Beard Of of Evil when he was masquerading as the dream date wizard Harlequin in order to get his hands on Hogatha's "magic whistle," which was really her bird call. However, during a kiss, the fake beard attached attaches itself to Hogatha's face, revealing her dream date to be Gargamel, yet Hogatha doesn't notice it until after Gargamel is gone when she looks at herself in the mirror and says, "I have charm, I have beauty, I have a beard...beard... A BEARD?!?"
** Gargamel's godfather Lord Balthazar has the Chin Spike Of of Evil.

** Petyr Baelish is bearded, even though it's not quite the goatee he's described to have in the books. While he's also viewed as a MagnificentBastard by some, his actions definitely cause suffering for which he shows no remorse at all.

Sure enough, while Nottingham is [[AntiVillain morally grey]], the clone turns out to be all-out evil.
